Argentine artist Martha Boto is best known for her innovative kinetic and optical art. She studied art in Buenos-Aires at the National Academy of Fine Arts and was one of the founder members of the Non-Figurative Argentine Artist Group. She was the first artist from her country ever to work in kinetic art. Martha Boto first began to construct moving artworks in the form of suspended mobiles made with Plexiglas.
 
« I have always been fascinated by the laws of harmony and equilibrium which govern the cosmos through interrelations of light and movement, space,
time and color. »

Martha Boto

 
Her work in this area played a big part in the development of kinetic and optical art. She went on to explore the qualities of various reflective and light absorbing materials, including stainless steel and aluminum, which she used to create works involving movement, illumination, color and the distortion of light. After Boto moved to Paris in 1959 with her partner, the artist Gregorio Verdanega, her work was part of an international exhibition of Constructive Abstract Art.

What is kinetic art?

What is kinetic art?

International movement referring to both apparent and real motion of art created in the 1920s and 1960s. It is explained as art emerging from any medium containing some movement that depends on motion for effect or can be perceived by the viewer. Canvas paintings are some of the notable and earliest examples of this art type. Speaking pertinently, kinetic art today refers to 3 dimensional figures and sculptures such as those operated by machines or those that move naturally. It encompasses a variety of styles and techniques that overlap.
